Shopping for family and friends was easier and less expensive than shopping at the resort. You can bargain for items that you may want to purchase. All the shops along the strip are owned by outsiders, selling Jamaican souvenirs. I prefer to buy local fro the islanders! Hip Strip along with nearby craft markets is pure Jamaica.
